.@narendramodi जी आपकी सरकार ने बग़ैर किसी ऑर्डर और FIR के मुझे पिछले 28 घंटे से हिरासत में रखा है।
अन्नदाता को कुचल देने वाला ये व्यक्ति अब तक गिरफ़्तार नहीं हुआ। क्यों? pic.twitter.com/0IF3iv0Ypi

In the video, farmers are seen marching forward with flags in their hands, when a jeep blowing a siren comes from behind and tramples on several people in the fresh Lakhimpur Kheri Violence incident. Several people were injured in the collision of a speeding jeep. In the video it is clearly seen, that an elderly man was hit by the speeding vehicle and he then fell on the ground. An SUV is also seen behind the jeep in the video.
After this video surfaced, opposition leaders have started targeting BJP. First Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh and then Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi shared this video on social media. Although the police have not confirmed this video, nor is it clear who was driving the vehicle. Let us inform that 8 people including 4 farmers were killed in the violence in Lakhimpur Kheri.
In the meanwhile, Priyanka Gandhi in a tweet has questioned Narendra Modi & the BJP, “I have been kept in custody, however the person who crushed the food donor has not yet been arrested?
On the detention of Priyanka Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi has said on social media that the one who you have kept in custody is not afraid. She is a true Congress, will not give up. Satyagraha will not stop. On the other hand, Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala has said that even the arrest of those who crushed the food donors with a car and Priyanka Gandhi, who wiped her tears, was in custody for 30 hours? Neither told the crime, nor presented in the court.
जिसे हिरासत में रखा है, वो डरती नहीं है- सच्ची कांग्रेसी है, हार नहीं मानेगी!
सत्याग्रह रुकेगा नहीं।#FarmersProtest
